Personalising Your Child's Homeschooling Experience
One of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is the flexibility it provides. Unlike traditional schooling, you have the freedom to tailor your child's education to their individual needs and interests. This can make learning more enjoyable and effective, but it can also be overwhelming for some parents who are unsure of where to start.
At ARI Learning, we believe in the power of adaptable, reciprocal, and interactive (ARI) learning experiences that put learners at the center of their education. In this post, we'll explore how you can embrace the flexibility of homeschooling and personalise your child's education with ARI Learning.
Discover Your Child's Learning Style
Every child is unique and learns in different ways. By understanding your child's learning style, you can tailor your homeschooling approach to their needs. Some children are visual learners, while others are auditory or kinesthetic learners. There are many online assessments and resources available to help you identify your child's learning style.
At ARI Learning, we offer adaptable learning opportunities that allow for a person-centered experience. Our classrooms and learning spaces are designed to accommodate individual needs and goals, and we strive to make ARI Learning experiences inclusive and welcoming.
We encourage neurodivergent learners to please let us know what accommodations we can make to make the classroom as accessible as possible.
With ARI Learning, you can take advantage of our resources and support to identify your child's preferred learning style and choose curriculum and activities that cater to their strengths.
Follow Your Child's Interests
One of the great things about homeschooling is that you can incorporate your child's interests into their education. If your child loves animals, for example, you can build lessons around zoology, ecology, and biology. At ARI Learning, we believe in reciprocal learning, where everyone has something to learn from each other. All learners are teachers in our spaces, drawing from a collective knowledge that is dynamic and fluid as interaction happens. With ARI Learning, you can connect with our social groups that are learner-directed and inclusive, gain knowledge about sustainable living practices, get support for artists, and learn about creating connections.
Be Flexible with Your Schedule
Unlike traditional schooling, homeschooling allows you to create a schedule that works for your family. Some children learn better in the morning, while others prefer to study in the afternoon or evening.
At ARI Learning, we offer interactive learning experiences from teachers in different time-zones that allow learners to immerse themselves in a topic, contributing to their own learning goals in meaningful ways.
We believe that involvement in the process is more important than the outcome or product. You can also adjust your schedule to accommodate extracurricular activities or other obligations. By being flexible with your schedule, you can help your child learn at their own pace and reduce stress and burnout.
Take Advantage of Online Resources
Homeschooling can be a daunting task, but fortunately, there are many online resources available to help you. At ARI Learning, we offer knowledge about creating connections and more! You can find free lesson plans, educational videos, and interactive games online. You can also connect with other homeschooling parents in online forums and communities. By taking advantage of these resources, you can supplement your child's education and gain support from others.
Embracing the flexibility of homeschooling can make a big difference in your child's education. By personalising their learning experience and following their interests, you can create a more engaging and effective curriculum.
Remember to be flexible with your schedule and take advantage of online resources to make the most of your homeschooling journey.
